Harris CapRock to collaborate on O3b project

Harris CapRock Communications is to work with O3b Networks on its recently agreed contract to supply Royal Caribbean Cruises' Oasis of the Seas, the largest cruise ship in the world, with its O3b Maritime VSAT service.

Harris CapRock will implement and maintain the O3b Maritime service for the cruise ship, deploying the stabilised VSAT antenna systems and providing a fully managed service.

Starting in summer 2013, O3b's service will offer 350 Mbps download speeds to ships at sea via a network of eight Medium-Earth-Orbit (MEO) satellites.

“This exciting partnership between Harris CapRock and O3b Networks offers a unique combination for maritime innovator Royal Caribbean who is committed to providing the very best cruise experience to its guests,” said Rick Simonian, president of maritime solutions for Harris CapRock.

“We look forward to working closely with O3b Networks and to bringing a truly ground-breaking service offering to the maritime industry.”
